I thought the book on microfracture surgery was that you needed to wait about 18 mo to two years afterwards to see the final effects? He’s certainly not #1 overall pick material, and I don’t think we’ll see another 4.5 40 from him (which was the thing I think pushed the Texans to grab him at #1), but I wouldn’t call him a bust just yet.
The limited time I’ve watched him, he gets into position to make plays, and is just this close from making great ones. Fingertips brushing the QB as he’s blocked past him, that sort of thing. I hope that as he heals, he’ll pick up those hundredths of a second, and start making plays.
Back injuries, foot injuries, concussed, his initial knee issue: sure does seem awfully fragile though so far.
EDIT: Oh, and I’m expecting the Chiefs to annihilate the Texans tomorrow. Unfortunately. Wouldn’t be surprised to see a 13-9 kind of game.
I’ll take Seattle to cover, 1 degree kickoff temperature forecast or not; Cincy to cover if not win; and Washington to do both.
